What does it mean to have Oceanic Breath?

Oceanic breathing is a type of breathing that encourages the passage of prana, or life-force energy, throughout the body. It consists of a long, smooth inhalation followed by a tightening of the muscles in the back of the throat on exhalation. The sound of ocean waves is produced by the contraction of the neck muscles.

This breathing method is known by the Sanskrit title ujjayi ("triumphant") breathing and is also known as victorious breath or cobra breath.

Anyone can do ocean breathing if they can breathe. It doesn't matter their age, size, or physical limitations; if they can breathe, they can do this activity.

What are the advantages of Oceanic Breath for your health?

Oceanic breathing, also known as Ujjayi breathing (pronounced oo-jai) in Sanskrit, has a calming effect on the entire cardiorespiratory and nervous systems.

Practicing Ocean breathing helps to relax the mind and body and has a number of advantages:

  • Lungs that are stronger and have more capacity
  • A stronger diaphragm and a healthier heart
  • The ability to heal asthma can be limited at times.
  • It's possible that you'll be able to quit smoking.
  • The nervous system that is tranquil
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Blood pressure and heart rate are both lower.
  • Improved sleep quality
  • An improved mental condition
  • Allows us to recognize and repair old wounds from the past.

Safety and Precautions

  • At least 1 hour after eating, practice breathing at any time of day.
  • This breathing pattern may be problematic if you have respiratory problems or a condition like asthma.
  • Make sure you're getting enough oxygen and stop if you start to feel dizzy or lightheaded. During this exercise, you should not experience any pain or shortness of breath. If you're unsure, talk to your doctor.
  • When performing these breathing techniques, it's not uncommon for emotions to surface and tears to flow.

When your body opens up and releases old emotions, this is a natural reaction. Allow it to happen if it does; you'll feel better afterward.


MeditationLifeSkillsPodcast.com strives to present meditation concepts that connect east and west, tradition and science in a non-sectarian way, from multiple traditions and not promoting any particular technique or method.

One important principle I try to accomplish is to take complex ideas about meditation and the not-so-well understood meditation principles to help you understand how they can fit into your life.

To your success in meditation!
